I There was a good attendance at the sale of runs to-day, the Provincial Chamber being crowded. The runs were generally secured by tho present holders. In case of those not scoured by the Midland Railway Company the competition was keen, and holders had to advance considerably on the npßet prioes. Anaraa, Hon W. S. Peter, rose from £235 to £690 ; Shepherd's bnah from £230 to £520 ; Alford, from £300 to £640 ; Mount Possession, from £380 to £880; Double Hill, £1280] to £1710 ; Craigieburn, £920 to £1320. Those under the Midland Railway Company's leases did not advance m many oases, as tenure was only temporary. Several of the old settlers were greeted with applause on securing their holdings at the upset prices, Tho total of the sale amounted to £19,899, only two runs being withdrawn. Twenty-three were sold at upset prioes, and thirty at advanced rentals; The Commie, eioner expressed himself greatly satisfied with the sale.
